Robinson’s artist talk will be Wednesday, January 15, 2020 at 5pm at the Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership, 205 Monroe St, Kalamazoo, MI, 49006.
In his artist talk, titled Designing a Cooperative World Future, Robinson will discuss his artistic practice as a method of world-building for the Black future. Through visual and audio creation, Robinson thinks through un-reconciled colonial traumas in order to move outside of past, present, and future colonial influences in the creation of self-determined Black liberated futures.
On Thursday, January 16, at 5pm Robinson will lead a workshop titled Afrofuturism: Character and World Building as Methodology. This event will also be at the Arcus Center. This workshop, open to 25 people, will focus on thinking about Afrofuturism as a praxis. Designed to be accessible to all levels of familiarity with Afrofuturism, visual creation, sound, and space, Robinson will lead participants in learning specific methods and practices of Afrofuturist methodologies so that they can build their own characters and worlds that use speculative design methods to create liberated worlds. Workshop space is limited and pre-registration is requested. Please email email@example.com to reserve your spot.
